Osteopathy focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the way in which this inter-relates with the body as a whole. It combines scientific knowledge of anatomy and phsyiology, as well as clinicalmethods of investigation. Osteopaths diagnose and treat faults which occur because of injury, stress, or disease. By enabling the musculoskeletal system to work as efficiently as possible, the body is encouraged to restore itself.

Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and treatment of painful conditions which is recognised by the British Medical Association. It is essentially a "hands-on" manual therapy that is basedon the belief that if the structure and alignment of the body are correct, then it will function properly. Dr. Andrew Taylor-Still, the founder of osteopathy, first proposed his philosophy and practice in 1874 in the U.S.A.

Osteopathy is based on many principles, one being that the body, has the capacity to heal itself given the right conditions. The osteopath uses their highly developed sense of touch to diagnose andtreat areas of poor function in the body's framework which may be causing pain or hindering the patient's healing processes to work effectively. As a result, the osteopath does not only treat the painful area but will try to find the root cause of the problem and help patients heal.
